How an Investor Turned $130 into $130,000 in ETH within Three Days

An investor who purchased a Hashmask digital art at the rate of $130 about a week ago has resold it for more than $130,000, which is a relatively 100,000% profit.

According to the information on the website, Hashmasks is a “living digital art collectible” created by over seventy artists across the world, are a collection of 16,384 unique digital portraits.

Any investor that buys a specific Hashmask earns “Name Changing Tokens” (NCTs), which can be accrued and burnt to change the title of the artwork they purchased.

Investor Earns Over 100,000% Profit

On Thursday 28th January 2021, an investor bought Hashmask #1, currently titled “Trump,” for 0.1 Ethereum worth about $130 at the time of purchase.

Afterward, the investor resold the artwork after three days on the rare items marketplace  OpenSea for 97.2307 ETH, worth around $130,000 at the time of the purchase, but worth $147,463 at the time of publishing.

The new buyer, “westcoastbill,” has been very active in the Hashmasks trade, already purchasing more than 30 of the unique portraits.

Hashmasks uses non-fungible tokens to verify their ownership. Each of the 16,384 Hashmasks also earns ten Name Changing Tokens a day. Investors who’ve accumulated 1,830 NCTs, which is about six months’ worth of daily earnings, can then burn them to change the on-chain name of the Hashmask they own.
